Life on Autopilot: Changing Habits
October 15, 2014
Hosted by Laurie Hibbard
How many times have you bought a diet or other self-improvement book, read it enthusiastically from cover to cover, bought everything you need to get started and then have the whole plan fizzle out within the first week? The book gathers dust on your bedside table until you finally put it on the shelf next to the other similar books. The ideas in the books are great, your intentions are true, so why can’t you stick with the plan? In a word, habits. Change is hard, especially when you’re trying to break old habits or create new ones. But with the right information at hand and the right steps to take, it can be done. Tracey Fellowes has built a 30-year career out of helping individuals and organizations make the changes they want, and, most importantly, make them stick. Join us to discover how you can override the habits that keep you stuck on autopilot.
